Speaking of Chef Boyardee, in the future you may have no alternative choice in who makes your food since the Senate passed the Food Safety Bill of 2010 currently being held up by a legislative error. This bill was heavily lobbied for by big food e.g. ConAgra (parent company of Chef Boyardee), Cambells Soup, Kraft Food Inc., Tyson, and Cargill which begs the questions (1) why would they want to regulate themselves via government? and (2) how will small farms and proprietors be affected by this? (3) Is the system in need of repair? These questions were not asked by comedian John Stewart when he mocked conservatives and libertarians for rejecting the measure, a political feat, which Mr. Stewart was evidently very impressed with. I digress, more on the Food Safety Bill later... If you aren't already appalled at our corrosive debt, two wars continuing without end and the possibility of another in North Korea or Iran, the State Department spying on ambassadors from other countries, ad nauseam, you may not have a pulse and probably couldn't care less about the latest intrusion into our lives.
The FCC after being rebuffed by a Florida federal appeals court last April has no business in regulating the internet or anything outside of radio and television unless new legislation is passed by Congress. The FCC is attempting to establish net nuetrality for the second time and under the same guise - "to preserve the freedom and openness of the internet." The internet is free and it is open so why does a federal commission feel it could provide a service? The internet has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade allowing us to communicate, buy, sell, entertain, work, play, learn, and explore the universe as we have never been able to before, why do we need the government involved at all? It hasn't been there since the beginning and sure as hell it doesn't need to be there now.
